Product Description

There's one name ringing louder in the rap underground than any other right now-Mike Jones. Who? While an indie Swishahouse, the freestyler garnered sales of more than 250,000 CDs, sold-out shows from Cleveland to Indianapolis to hometown Houston, shouts from Jay-Z and DJ Clue during an "MTV Direct Effect" episode, a deal with Reebok, and a clothing line. Now he lands a major label. Soon everyone will know: Who Is Mike Jones? Asylum. 2005.

When two out of every three Cadillac Escalades in Anywheresville USA are blasting your single, it says something. What that something is, no one’s quite sure yet, but "Still Tippin", Mike Jones’ ode to flossing pimped out rides featuring guests Slim Thug and Paul Wall, is southern psychedelic rap at it’s finest, with it’s trippy, slo-mo riddims tailor made for truck speakers. Sadly, a too-large chunk of the album unconsciously celebrates Jones’ lyrical limitations, beginning with "Back Then" where he and his Swisha House homies sample and flip near identical beats and rhymes as on "Still Tippin’". Huh. Jones staying power comes more from repeating his name and lyrics as often as humanly possible providing a great lesson in branding, but not much else. The clever introspective letter he pens to his late nana ("Grandma"), who passed away just before he blew up, demonstrates that his writing isn’t completely artless. But how many times can one stomach verses about his name or vacuous tales about his "…chain full of rocks and princess cuts in my watch" ("Flossin")? As with any Lil’ Jon or Yin Yang Twins produce, you have to singularly cop it for the colossal beats, here provided by DJ Paul and Micheal "5000" Watts. --Dalton Higgins

I removed 1 star from the 5 because the album is not perfect (few are). I removed 2 stars because Mike's nauseating marketing scheme of mentioning his name, phone number, and website over and over again on the album just gets ridiculous. His selfish promotion gets in the way of the music itself, a cardinal sin in this longtime hip-hop fan's opinion. Rap/H-H may have been founded on bragging and boasting, and that's all good, but I don't recall ever feeling like an artist was spamming me with advertisements during a song/performance in this quasi-hypnotic, Don King-like self-promotional style.

Half the songs on the album start off with the mention of "Mike Jones!!" or "Who is...Mike Jones?!" The last song, titled "Grandma", starts off "Oh Grandma. Mike Jones!!". Safe to say this song won't make the rotation in the Escalade. I know he explains his marketing scheme in "Grandma", but the fact is the scheme ruins the music...and the music is what we bought the album for.

Mike Jones gets out-rhymed by Slim Thug on "Still Tippin". Mike, you can't repeat hooks from other songs ("Back Then...") and still consider that rhymin'...not when you say the same thing 4 times. Work on that before your next album, please.

The Screwed and Chopped disc is off the chain though. Big up to Michael 5000 Watts - what it do baby!

"I feel sorry for the 13yr old teenagers who lovin him, tried to tangle with the shark but I'm sorry he doesn't swim." -Chamillionaire. Who?? Dyke Jones Honestly people, How can you defend this played out wannabe lyricist (4yrs now). For anyone that gave this album one star, you're all certified geniuses - all others ... need to get their head examined or go and do some background research. If you do, you'll find out how cake and overused this man's raps are. I've been listening to DJ Screw (S.U.C.) Swisha House, B.H.O, C.C.C., Wreckin Yard, Freestyle Kings and just about every texas (houston mainly) rap/freestyle/screw group since 2000, maybe earlier. At any rate, Mike Jones entered sometime in 2002 if I recall correctly - SINCE 2002 - Mike Jones has been using the same lyrics, style, excessive name usage and reusage of other rappers previous statements or cuts of, tangled with another in an attempt to form his own "creative" style but instead comes out sounding like outtakes from american idol auditions (thankfully mike jones doesn't attempt the art of dance in adddition to rap).

As for people praising the song "Still Tipping" Featuring Slim Thug & Paul Wall. This is not only the remix of the original Still Tippin, the remix and the original have both already been used an 2 other albums before who is mike jones. One version featured Chamillionaire instead in place of mike jones and w/o Paul Wall (unfortunately) but Chamillionaire's verse was 1,000x better than Mike Jones's reused flow.

Back Then? Re-used line from Still Tippin and from just about every Mike Jones verse or song as the hook.

Reccomendation, use both cds for cupholders, mini-frisbies, wutever, a good laugh perhaps. Then go and pick-up Chamillionaire's Mixtape Messiah or Paul Wall & Chamillionaire's - Get Ya Mind Correct or Controversy Sells.

Being from Houston, Texas I am one of many that have heard of Mike Jones before he was "tippin' on 4 vogues" and gettin' his songs played on Hot 97 in New York. This "Who is Mike Jones?" campaign has been going on since I was a freshman in high school. What does that have to do with anything? That was 4 years ago! After many delays and pushbacks, Mike Jones has finally come out with his major debut album, the appropriately titled "Who is Mike Jones?" Well, I will tell you one thing about Mike Jones: he has the idea of how to market himself, but he doesn't know how to create a great album. Don't let this 3 star rating fool you, I am being kind. If it wasn't for the beats, this album would be 2 stars at best.

I will say this though about this LP. The beats are very impressive. "Got it Sewed Up (Remix)" and other tracks like "Screw Dat" will keep your car bumpin' if ya got a CD player in it, and Mike does do a good job through the first half of the album getting by. But Mike's downfall is his limited lyrical skills. Don't get me wrong, "Back then, h*es didn't want me, now I'm hot, h*es all on me" is a great line ("Still Tippin'"), but he says it 4 times back-to-back! Not to mention his second single "Back Then" has a chorus that is sampled from his first single "Still Tippin'." Mike Jones does bring help with him with cameos from Slim Thug (who sadly only appears on "Still Tippin'"), Paul Wall, Big Moe, Bun B and others, but Mike is usurped by his cameo's more charismatic punchlines. It also seems as if Mike likes to repeat the same lines back-to-back in all of his songs which is very annoying after a while.

Album Overview:

1. "Intro"

2. "Back Then" - I was really annoyed when I first heard this song because of the chorus.
